It’s astounding that more than 9.5 million plastic bottles have been collected in coastal cleanups worldwide over the past 25 years. Plastic water bottles are having a devastating effect on our ecosystems along our shores and beyond, and the worst part is, it could all be prevented!
So as you’re preparing for the beach this summer, do your part to make sure your trip to the beach this summer is green and plastic bottle-free! Here are a few things you can do to help out:
1) First: Sign the pledge to Take Back the Tap at the beach
2) Pack a few reusable water bottles —don’t forget to fill them up first!
3) Headed to the beach with a lot of people? Get some big water containers, fill them with ice and tap water, and bring reusable cups!
4) Have fun, stay hydrated and don’t leave anything behind!
